How nice of them to kick off the year with a 1988 show, and thereby signal to old-timers not to buy the Road Trips subscription:

As a bonus disc they should include 4/8 Worcester from days later. That show is so lame and short the entire show might actually fit on one disc. I have not listened to either of these road trips selections but I still find it to be an odd choice. Granted I'm not a fan of 88 but I really don't remember these shows being mentioned as epic or worthy of an official release.

Tragic. I blame myself for getting my hopes up for another complete E'72 show or a clean board of a show only available in audience tapes.

People that do not like Brent or Jerry in full Fozzie Bear mode, don't even bother. I had a thing with/for this time so I must look for a TOG(not the song)(per se). Last 2' of 1/2 step is a must. Strat mentioned other goodies for us late eighties lovers. It was one of the better shows of '88.

The DMF from the show below diminishes 4-1-88.

I listened to both recs. (Thanks for the link.) I'm just not a fan of TS, but BW was playing well. I'm a child of the late 80's GD so my heart is open, but it's just not worth the time, when there is so much music that I already have that I don't get a chance to listen to.
And I hope they don't release shows from tours I love like 6/85 or 3/90 (anymore then they already have). I'd rather have them remain open.

killer cumberland-Deal one two punch. And hey LOTS of people like the 80's. They just released a 69 show so lighten up some of you.

Of course I don't purchase much of anything anymore. Certainly not stuff I already have. The studio album box sets were way worht the $ esp with the bonus stuff and the Jerry box was LOADED with extras

From what I remember, possible best ever versions of Deal and Fire, and interesting versions of TOO and NFA. A nice Terrapin as well, and a few other pretty good performances. 4/1 is arguably the best show of the year. I don't believe the 03/31 GDTRFB through Knockin is a strong stretch of music however.

Sound quality is good as usual. What circulates is fine, though a touch thin compared to the release.

I was ready to go into rip mode seeing this selection, it certainly isn't the best way to kick off the year, however they may save themselves from complete embarrassment by, at least, including the colossal scarlet fire and hot Samson and very well put together terrapin from 3-31...I offer my services pro bono to road trips to get some better selections going forward...I am giving them a mulligan for having put out 6-18 and 5-15 the last year or so

A horrendous selection! It doesnt get much worse than 1988. Just another reason not to pre-order the RT subscription...

This maybe one of the better choices for the Road Trips Series. A competent performance and the audio quality should be stellar.

I believe this recording was around the time Healy started to broadcast RF at shows. Having recordings this close to the tape head provides a good reference tool in one's musical libray.

I don't see much point in owning a stellar recording of a merely competent performance - all that means is that you'll hear all the flubs in crystal clarity.

I'm glad they at least came out and told you the first release because I was torn on what to do. I like the idea of free shipping and the bonus disc(even though its only one disc). I have about half the road trips but i'll stay away from the subscription especially after listening to the few tracks in the listening party. The Hey Jude is a trainwreck but the transition out of Fantasy is nice.

I like owning the official releases even though it is a waste of $$$$. Something about the tangible aspect of it. I tend to play the official releases more than streaming but this place is changing that some. Not that the computer speakers are bad but its not the same as my home stereo or car.

Much as I liked many of the shows from that year, including the ones I saw live, I can't wrap my head around paying that much cash for shows I can access in outstanding quality through other means. Gotta do better than that R/T.

Although I will say it is nice to seem them sticking more and more to an Entire Show Release concept.

So, the bad news is - the show selection sucks.
And the good news is - you get all of it?

Sorry I wasn't more clear. Yes, I like the concept but moreso when applied to earlier years.


I suppose I should have better anticipated your rapier-like response before hitting "Submit Post", mea culpa.

Nah, just one of those days where if feels like I'm trapped in a valley and the crap is rolling downhill.

No matter, I shall soldier on and continue to take out all my frustrations on you.

Thanks for being there.

Glad to be of some little service. Not sure I've pulled nightshift on the whipping boy rota, though. You might have to call up Dire - he was around earlier.

Was it in Annie Hall that Woody Allen told the joke about two people at some restaurant somewhere, the first remarking that the food is terrible and the other, "Yes, and such small portions!" I think Rob's rapier-like rejoinder translates roughly as, "Yes, but at least the portions are large!"

If we could possibly bring Jerry back for one night, a - virtual reality - Hollywood trip, each and everyone of us would cough up the $500 admission cost.

Yes and if that venue performance was 04/01/88, you'd pay it up!

Elvis and The Beatles would command $10,000 a seat.
